Sometimes I just get so overwhelmed by too many books and too little reading time, and before I know it another month has passed and the new releases I meant to read remain in my TBR pile. It's frustrating to see them pile up like that. So I decided feature, on an ongoing basis, some new releases which came my way that I think sound pretty awesome. By getting the word out about these books, maybe some of you will want to add them to your lists as well.
Maybe some of my readers have already read these, if so what did you think about these?
Here's some of my picks for for January, February and March of 2013.

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, March 2013: It can’t be easy to sit down and write a new novel after your last, Olive Kitteridge, won the Pulitzer Prize (in 2009). The pressure! The pressure! In The Burgess Boys, novelist Elizabeth Strout somehow manages to survive whatever next-book anxiety while at the same time revisiting the themes and types of characters that have made her famous: plainspoken Mainers (some transplanted now to Brooklyn) bound together by both love, competitiveness and the issues of the day. Here, hotshot lawyer Jim and bighearted Bob Burgess come together over a politically incorrect prank perpetrated by their sister’s son--and discover that their distrust of each other has never really gone away. But then, neither has their love. Nobody does buried conflict and tortured familial relations better than Strout.
